A 20-year-old student of Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State, has been arrested by the police for allegedly killing her ex-boyfriend.
Chitere Okoronkwo was arrested on Monday by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Imo State Police Command, six months after the death of her ex-boyfriend, Osigwe Johnmark.
24-year-old final year Biotechnology student of FUTO, Osigwe Johnmark, was shot dead while returning from a test.
Chitere Okoronkwo has since her arrest confessed to the August 8, 2018 assassination.
While confirming the news, the state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said: “
When their relationship got sour and ended, the girl demanded compensation.
The deceased, due to persistent threats to life before being assassinated, had paid N1.8m for shop rent and N2m for interior decoration of the shop to the estranged girlfriend.
Not done with the threats, she demanded N3m, which the deceased gave through a lawyer. Before the money was finally paid to the lady, he was murdered inside his Mercedes SUV.
After his death, the lady fled to South Africa. Okoronkwo has confessed that she told a guy that she wanted the victim dead due to their misunderstanding.”
